Summer/Fall of '76 is an underrated era. There are so many great shows from this period, and this is one of them.
It says that this is a soundboard tape, but to me, it sounds more like an audience .The recording isn't the best, but I found it quite listenable for the most part. The Morning Dew, however, sounds bad. There's some weirdness earlier on, too. During Wharf Rat, IIRC.

The other version of this show has a better mix up until the end of the Other One on through to the gorgeous Morning Dew. Both are from the same source apparently, just the other version was cleaned up a bit. The show is great their performance masterful, their tight and in a groove that is purely, uniquely ‘76. Problem is the sound. I prefer this version only for the end of the Other One and Morning Dew, the rest I would suggest listening to the other version. The Lazy Lightning/Supplication is bliss while the Crazy Fingers is airy, smooth and funky. The return of El Paso and Morning Dew are what stands out for me. Again the performance is awesome and should be experienced at least once. As far as auds go this is not so bad. I’m just happy that this exists. Happy listening.

This hurts me too
I'm usually fairly forgiving, but this is just an awful recording. It sounds like it was recorded on previously used reels. Even poor Wharf Rat isn't justified for download.

.....the LAST show I need to complete my 1976 CD collection....!!
Who's got it on CD and wants to trade a copy? I've got 5,000 hours of GD on CD to trade.
Email me at "clegg AT supernet DOT COM". Include the phrase "Grateful Dead 9-23-76" in the subject line. I will reply to ALL emails....

Just needs a touch of the Miller magic...
Grate show...but, it needs to be Charlie-Millerized. I'll ask him if he can do anything about it.

great show, not so nice recording
I really enjoyed this show despite the sound quality. The final jam in The Music Never stopped put a smile on my face. Donna showed off her vocal skills as Jerry tickled the srings in Dancin'.Eyes is nice and I absolutely loved Wharf Rat. Its played with feeling. The Other One is powerfull as well.
Yeah, we all wish it was clearer, but the music was exceptional that night. They seemed to be playing with tempos even more than usual, some songs being a little slower, some a little peppier (LLR is quite a bit faster than I'm used to hearing it). Donna is nicely buried in the mix, but Keith is about as hot as he gets. And that setlist is almost perfect...

it's a shame
This recording is not that good but most of it is at least a treble-less SBD. It really bites that the largest section of the awful AUD patch is the best part of the show, the spacey part of the Other One and entirety of the Morning Dew (which is not a perfect version, a little rusty, but a fine ending). DRAT!!!!!!!
Seriously, this is perhaps the best show of '76. Keith is a factor here!! Believe it or not! Stellar versions of Crazy Fingers, H>S>F, Eyes, and of course the Dancin>Rat>OtherOne>Dew. Sure, they played the heck out of these songs in '76, but they rip!! A mega-boss Other One!!! A humdinger for those without quality control hangups!

A crime there's no board
This show would get a lot of attention if a clean soundboard showed up. What a damn shame!

first Dew since 1974
This show is special for its historical value in that it showcases a wild Morning Dew at the end of the show. The first since 10-18-74. Given the hiatus is 75 it was not too many shows yet still about two years. This was one of only 3 Dews to be played in 76 and was not played again until Feb of 77 and did not play it but 5 times in 77 and then once in 78 and once in 79 and 4 times in 80, 7 times in 81 and 8 times in 82 and 7 times n 83. This makes 35live performances of Dew in 9 years!
Sound quality sucks no bother to download if it sounds like shit. Great set list nice to hear on my windows media player but not worht te download. A great performance I can tell from what I hear.

A real good show
Won't someone please leak a clean SBD of this one? This is a tight show with plenty of good jamming. Crazy Fingers takes off into an expansive jam, and Slipknot! has plenty of intriguing internal cogitations. Dancing in the Streets never catches fire for some reason, but Wharf Rat does, and The Other one is a barn-burner. 14 minutes long, winding down into a 72-74 style space jam. Morning Dew is just exactly perfect.
The SBD is degraded, and the AUD patches worse, but this show is worth the effort.
